    I have used both quite a bit now :D

    whether it is to speed it up to get out quick or to slow it all down so I can get more on to get out quicker :D

    Hi Mark from eazymix(extratime/halftime) had a busy year with both products.Halftime great at this time of year when the plaster is hanging around to long.I have based halftime 1 satchet for half a bag of plaster which sets under an hour.Halftime 1 satchet still works on a full bag which sets in just over an hour.Would also like plasterers thoughts on halftime 4 bonding our lastest product making bonding plaster set in just 20 mins ready to skim can send out samples for plasteres to try contact me at mark@eazymix.co.uk for free trial.thanks mark

    Is it quicker than half time bonding pal

    Lodan Private Member

    I've not used the bonding one but 1 sachet of halftime for half bag of bonding, stays workable for about 15 minutes then flashsets and is ready for skimming 5 mins later...I use it for all my patching now, also it doesn't shrink back as it dries so fast

    Halftime is good if your in rush to finish or just do,nt like watching plaster set this time of year plaster hangs around for a long time you can still use 1 bag of halftime per full bag still makes it set a lot quicker.Still doing the free trial of halftime 4bonding makes bonding set and ready to skim in 20mins if any of you want to try for free email me at mark@eazymix.co.uk

    Well that's a result as my nose is all blocked up.
    But seriously, having not seen this I was wondering if it's just a sachet of casting plaster?

    to be fair I think both products are something that you could keep in your tool kit and just for the odd job here or there... I have used it a fair bit but normally to go the extreme to get it all on in one set rather than to speed it up :D
